I love working with Jacqui. Nothing is too difficult or impossible. She has a knack for finding solutions to problems I sometimes don’t even realise are damaging my business. She is also able to shine a light on paths that I haven’t considered taking. Her own knowledge of running a business as an expat is invaluable as is her gentle and calming attitude to guiding her clients through new stages in their business. She is a doer. She motivates me. She keeps me on my best path. I chose to work with Jacqui because although ‘I' know what we do at Jima Design is great, the world doesn’t - yet. Jacqui has the experience, the knowledge, the finesse and even the intuition to sense the strategies that are right for her clients.

I can't believe it is a year since working with you - I feel like you are still always there supporting me . I definitely wouldn't have come as far as I have without you. One of my biggest mistakes this year has been not checking in with you more. I am only just learning how important all this stuff that you and Hiro have been trying to tell me for ages is. I think mostly you have helped by being so positive and full of faith in me. I have been so slow to implement anything but what I understand now is that I am an artist (of sorts) and not a business person and I can never hope to bring my art to a business without having someone who understands marketing and strategic planning. Of course this is all stuff I can learn and read but it is so nice having the human connection. Someone who will listen to the woes and then set about working towards something positive instead of letting me dwell in the negativity. Maybe it comes naturally to some people and they make it look easy when in reality they have it all planned out but I am just a drifter and dreamer and hoper. None of these qualities will get me where I need to be. Claire Ishino.com
The work we did together was very useful. I remembered that I DO have business experience and that I CAN do all of the things you've suggested. I feel so much more confident now.

I consider myself a good copywriter and editor, but Jacqui - wow - she not only writes beautifully, her copy converts. She is what you would call a 'conversion copywriter.' I've 'stolen' exact phrases from her in my emails to clients and whoosh, I get a response.

I've just been getting tingles about all of this, so I just wanted to share with you, thanks to your help getting me this far along the path I've already potentially started to help one person who is really hurting right now. This means so much to me, and I wanted you to know your part in all of this!

One more thing I wanted to say was that since I started working with you, I've seen my vision for my business not only appear as if by magic but come to fruition in such a short time. But perhaps even more importantly for the first time in a very long time I am actually GLAD I live in Japan and I am now doing work which is not only meaningful but super rewarding. I'm not just biding my time until we can move [back to my home country] anymore. I'm happy to be here, now. So thank you for your support in getting to this awesome place. I only wish I could do the same for you.
